I’ve always loved the delicacy and beauty of dandelion seed heads, when they are perfectly round with little seeds. As kids, my sister and I loved to blow them into the wind. I’ve taken many pictures of those perfectly round and delicate dandelion seed heads, but this is the first one I took where part of the seed head was missing. What was so incredible to me when I first saw this on my monitor is the amazing way that mother nature has chosen to attach each seed to the center of the flower.
Here is a great lime-lapse video that shows the whole lifecycle of the flower: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQ_QqtXoyQw
